Why we’re different

We believe our ability and willingness to invest in boutique or specialist managers offers you the best chance of outperformance. That’s why we think our fund is an exciting and unique offering in the multi-manager space. For us, it’s all about investing in those managers with the best sustainable competitive advantage.

Our experience and in-house research capabilities, implementing a proven and repeatable investment process, allow us to identify these hidden gems. We then blend investment strategies which should perform at their best at differing points in the market cycle; this means we don’t need to make reactive macro calls and allows us to focus on where we can add the most value over the longer term.


Our typical investment process

Our investment process uses a screening workflow that consists of quantitative and qualitative analysis, fund correlation analysis and monitoring.
